Weekend Cooking: NEW 52 foodie project in 2013

I haven’t done a weekend cooking post in ages, but I am planning to change that. As a scrapbooker I am always looking out for new projects and for 2013 I am planning a “NEW 52 project”. You can read a bit more about that kind of project at the blog of One Little Bird Designs, but basically it involves doing one thing that is new to you each week.

I decided to limit my new experiences each week to recipes and am planning to try out one new recipe each week and – if it turns out nice – scrapbook a recipe card to create a special little cookbook at the end of the year. That way, I am forced to look through the umpteen cookbooks we have (or peruse all your weekend cooking posts) and finally cook something else than our staple meals, at least once a week.

So prepare for a recipe post every week in the new year!

  1. Sounds great! But I’m not a great cook. I basically cook “for survival” and of course, some spongecakes, but nothing special. Luckily, Mr.B&R loves to cook and he’s pretty good at it!

    • JoAnn, I was planning on doing it on Saturdays and then blog about it the following weekend. Saturday is the best day as there is plenty of time for cooking.


  2. I agree with Beth. I love that you are combining things you love to create something new. I cant wait to hear about the recipes and scrapbooking. I hope you’ll share the recipe cards as you go along.


  3. I had this idea as a resolution for last year, but it didn’t work until February :)) I really don’t seem to have so much time at the weekend, which actually for me means just Sundays during a school year… Anyway, I recommend you Nigel Slater’s series. It’s him that got me started on the cooking spree, and he is also fun to watch 🙂

  4. Great idea. I like to try a new recipe at least once a month. I admire your ambition and look forward to following your progress. Good luck.
